Semnan Maize Project

Semnan Maize Project

Agriculture

Project Location: Semnan
Land Area: 7 acres
Product: Maize grown for use as animal fodder
System Type: Drip system via the application of irrigation tape strip in diameter of 16mm and thickness of 200µm laid in rows of 30cm apart. The farm located in Semnan which is predominantly under the cultivation of maize was utilizing the traditional irrigation method; however, due to the lack of inefficiency in this system, the Farm management through relevant consultation with Polyiran Company and subsequent inspection of the Farm by the Company’s experts decided to have a newer more efficient drip system installed. Consistently, an irrigation tape strip in the diameter of 16mm and thickness of 200µm and length of 250 meters including the water flow rate of 1.3 liters per hour was selected for the project.

One of the main advantages of selecting a high lateral length is the reduction in the volume of connections, and the consequent lower implementation costs of the drip irrigation system. Furthermore, by using the drip system, the space that the irrigation system occupies is decreased, whereby the farmer will have more area for plantation and farm machinery operations.
